It sounds like you do not have it threaded right, completely rethread it and make sure that you have a fresh needle in the machine. Reread your manual, I am sure that something is wrong in the top threading. If, you misplaced your manual go to singerco.com and download it for free.

Pfaff Creative 2 loops on underside of fabric


Although there could be several reasons, this is generally called bird nesting or thread nesting. It is usually a result of loose upper tension, mis-threading, or possibly a needle/thread/fabric incompatibility.

#1--when you thread, make sure you ALWAYS raise the presser foot so the thread seats in the tension disk. And, be sure to change the needle often...

Fixing the problem of birdnesting


Birdnesting is a common but very frustrating problem that can be resolved easily once you know where the problem originates. Remember, if the birdnesting occurs on the underside of the fabric, the problem originates with the upper thread. If it shows on the top of the fabric, the problem is the bobbin.

Very often, the machine is not threaded correctly. Remove all the thread from the machine. Check there are no loose threads or lint stuck anywhere in the machine. Oil as instructed in the manual.

Install a brand new needle! The needle should be suitable for the thread and fabric you are using. All About Needles

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the upper thread. Verify the path is correct.

Check that the bobbin is installed and threaded properly.

Pull the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric.
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

Set the upper tension to the midway point.

While holding both thread tails lightly in your left hand, begin sewing slowly.

The thread keeps breaking .


You may have the tension set too tight or are not using the correct needle. Or, the bobbin thread may not be the same as the top thread. If the tensions are o.k., try using a ballpoint needle.

The thread gets caught up in bobbin area


This mess is commonly referred to as a bird's nest or 'birdnesting' and it's usually caused by incorrect top tension and that's often caused by the top thread not in the correct path. (For me, I occasionally forget to thread through the take-up lever.) A damaged needle can also cause birdnesting.

Singer 5430C bobbins thread always loopy


"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

The top thread keep breaking. should the tension


Thread breakage is usually due to the needle in backwards, upper tension too tight or old/weak thread.

When replacing the needle, make sure that the flat side is to the right (3 o'clock position) and is pushed all of the way up before tightening.

What brand and weight of thread are you using and are you sewing with the foot or free motion sewing?
